    i love these random questions. "how much should i charge", "what mower should i buy" "what size trailer"--all these depend so much on your personal situation, no one could possibly answer that for you.

    I really like the Eager Bever trailers, they are available with tons of options like the air lift front axle and available ABS. All Pro also offers some decent trailers too.

    After much inner debate, I just bought a new open. I really wanted an enclosed for the obvious reasons, security and weather protection. I went round and round and determined that an open was a better choice for me. If someone is going to steal your equipment, it doesnt matter if you have it in a vault, they will get to it. Weather protection is the only thing I lost but for me, that doesn't outweigh the ease of use of an open. Also, not only is an open less expensive, it is more versatile for getting to equipment, fueling, hauling mulch, plants, etc...

    I've never seen an Eager Beaver with 3,500 pound axles, nor air, which I doubt he has on his pick up.. ;)

    The smallest Eager Beaver I've ever seen was a 10ton deckover.. ;)

    these posts your making, SFL, dont seem like your normal posts at all..
